Oh how I miss my 2006 330i

Hey E90 owners and fans! I traded in my 2006 330i last fall towards a new 535. I figured that over time I would stop missing the 330, sort of how after about a week, I stopped missing the Audi A4 I traded in towards the 330. Well, it's been about 9 months and I still miss the crap out of it. It was really just such a fun car to drive: RWD, manual transmission. Loved it. I love my 535, but for very different reasons. Hope you guys don't mind my hanging out in here as well as the F10 forum, just reliving some great memories of driving that car.

Mein Auto: 2013 535i XDrive M-Sport
I traded a 2005 E60 545 for a 2013 535, a year ago, and I still miss the 545 every day. It was a totally different kind of car. And, paid for! There was nothing at all wrong with it. I just ended up in one of those decision vortexes that, and the end of which, one ends up with a new car in the driveway.

I threw a little money at the lease to lower the payment, so now I'm stuck waiting it out at least another 18 months until BMW might do a pull-ahead and get me into something else; probably a 4 series.

Vey true!! Not practical at the moment to have both hahah. I also don't dig the new 3 series as much, so I am resigned to E90 and E46 as the ones I would pick from...

Mein Auto: 2012 BMW 328i / F30
I hear ya, i miss my 2006 330i too. Don't get me wrong, I really like my 2012 328 I for a lot of reasons. My 330i was a great car, powerful I6, better steering feel and I swear the car handled better eventhough on paper the new 328 is better. The traction control rarely interfered in my 330i unlike the 328.
